I have had a dell laptop for about 3-4 years now. About a year ago the battery was just unbearable, so I bought a new one- not a genuine dell, but rather one from batteries.com. It was a knock-off. Well, it's been about a year on this battery and it barely lasts 20 minutes now.

I still have the old battery just sitting there. I saw this video and wondered...

Anyone any good with electronics and sodering and stuff like that? I wanna give this a shot!
